Did you know that many of today’s craft techniques are thousands of years old? See the old crafts come to life here in Odins Odense!
Many of the crafts we know, have their roots far back in antiquity. Just think of the first paintings that were made in caves about 40,000 years ago. The first cutting tools were made by prehistoric man as early as 300,000 years ago! Man has been creative and always through the years developed crafts into pure art form. For example, the wood carvings found from the time of Iron Age and the finest Viking silver jewelry.
In Odins Odense, we want to keep the crafts alive so millennia of knowledge is not forgotten. This weekend you have the opportunity to see many different craft techniques. Meet a knife smith and learn about the art of forging. Find a nice leather bag, learn about basket weaving and see the glass maker shaping the finest pearls. Walk among the stalls and see the skilled craftsmen work. There will also be ample opportunity to buy unique Danish handmade items to take home.
